....says that Ubuntu has rolled the port randomization changes into
9.3.4 for Feisty. So you should be okay.

BTW, I recommend for
port randomness testing; it includes a scatter plot graphic, which can
help you spot patterns and clusters that might not be noticed otherwise.
(It alerted me to a serious problem with my NAT router's firmware, so
now I'm proselytizing.)
